My First Post

Welcome to my blog!

I, like many others, was inspired at TMC18 to start a blog.  Thanks to my best friend's husband, that became a reality!  My goals are to share with others what I'm doing in my classroom, but also collaborate on activities and projects.

So why "Cupcakes and Pi"?  I LOVE cupcakes.  I make it a point to get a cupcake in every city I visit.  I'm a picky eater, so the idea that I can pick out whatever flavor I want is amazing!  In addition, I'm a nerd about all things pi.  I find pi absolutely fascinating!  I started school-wide Pi Day activities at my school back in March 2008, my second year teaching.  We began a pi reciting contest and a pi poster competition.  Over the course of the years, students strive to beat the school record.  The school record of 418 digits set in 2015 was shattered this year when Ryan S recited 504 digits of pi!  Check out these results!

Thank you to Elissa Miller and my sister, Suzanne, for their help coming up with a fun name for my blog!  Let the fun begin!
